Peacock Bridal...A Blended Affair

We've all seen the various trends and whether or not they fit our taste, they certainly fit the taste of others. I've always seen women look at peacock themes, but I never understood why. Is it the beauty that a peacock has and the influence it brings? Or, is it the beautifully blended colors that compliment various brides and their bridal party? Whatever it may be, this image caught my eye and made me think of all the different ways one can incorporate a peacock into their wedding day. Take a look!

These beautiful centerpieces had be blushing! Not only is this table setting simple, it's colorful and lively. The blended floral arrangement is simple and attracts light to the table, as well as serves as an excellent conversation piece. At a wedding, Sweet 16, or any formal gathering, you want guests to feel comfortable and welcomed, not overwhelmed. This is excellent and I would see this making it's way through 2013 with confidence.

Don't hesitate to go all out on your wedding. Color combinations such as blue, yellow, green, and purple can compliment any skin tone, personality, and theme preference. The groom love it too because they're not limited to bright pastels, as jewel tones tend to be calmer and more inviting for all persons. Now, if you want something a little more, throw a little 'bling' into the mix and walk down the aisle (or runway, it's your choice) in style!

Real Wedding Talk

No, I'm not getting married anytime soon, however, reading about weddings is a different story. Wedding Babylon-Confessions of a Wedding Planner, is a book of pure laughs, giggles, and "OMGSH" moments. Written by Imogen Edwards-Jones and Anonymous (don't ask questions, just read), the life of one of the busiest wedding planners in Europe takes you for a ride you won't forget. Take a step into a week of a wedding planner, deal with the crazy brides, over-priced cakes and catering halls, massive amounts of alcohol, and some other ridiculous events. Honestly, I didn't think I would be too into the book, however, I am still reading it, and had to put it down because if I don't, I wouldn't get any work done, let alone write this quick review.
  If you're in the United States, or even Canada, you may not be able to find this book, however, Amazon has it for £ 5.99, which is about $7.50 (at least today). You may think I'm crazy, but it's really a good book, especially if you're not sure as to what to read. My advice? Click the link below and take a peak. You never know what you might find!
